Oh boy oh boy! I feel like I gained a ton! We shall see, we shall see. I have no plans to weigh in until next Thursday. Im not even getting on the scales. Why should I torture myself with the gain I most assuredly ended up with. Tomorrow I go right back on my lo cal diet consisting of five small protein packed meals throughout the day!
I struggled mightily this week on vacation but I am not getting all down about it. Vacations are a part of life. If I cant learn to handle them eventually then I'm thinking maybe I just wont stress it. Maybe there is more than one way to handle these vacations just as there is more than one way to skin a goose! Maybe just maybe my way of handling vacations with eating and enjoying myself than returning to a strict diet...just maybe that is the way I will handle this for life.
You see the bad thing about eating too much kettle corn and drinking too much diet coke or eating thick grilled hamburgers on the lake is that it could be become a habit and one could end up never going back to ones previous careful eating. But if one does this at the lake and then comes home and immediately returns to a healthy lifestyle of eating fruits and veggies then really what does it hurt? Maybe its just another way to handle life?
Is this a valid thought? What about it all you big time losers out there? I'm thinking that if vacations are so much trouble for me then why sweat it. Go with it! Just start back on plan when you get home. Eventually the weight will come off. I'm in no hurry. Ive given myself two years to do this.
I certainly hope this sounds sane and not just the voice of failure here!
